opening remarks and discussion of expectations for the joint meeting. supervisor mirkarimi: who wants to talk about expectations? [laughter] how about we just say that this has been an event will an exciting year in 2010 and we very much appreciate what lafco, local commissions, and p u c has taken together toward the activation of our goal to be alligator. i want to thank everyone here for their leadership and do diligence, particularly for the two departments to do one thing that is certainly unprecedented, that is banding together with other jurisdictions to send off the interest that had been threatened from the last election, proposition 16, with
regard to our extracurricular intentions. we are learning how to navigate around the rfp process for the prospective bidders. i recognize that that has done been easy, since this is un chartered, both for the city and county of san francisco. i want to say how much i appreciate the lafco commissioners, i colleagues, and the puc commissioners for your commitment to this. we conclude this year on hopefully the highest know we can, and that is, with that reinforced commitment that we will deliver upon what we have set out to for the last few years, and even before i came into elected office, that my predecessors had wanted to see.
that is that san francisco has a seat at the table in deciding what its destiny should be, as well, it's destiny delineated by our goals and objectives while diversifying our energy portfolio as much as possible. so thank you, everybody for collaborating in this meeting today. it will certainly add to that more institutional step to get us where we need to go. director vietor? >> thank you, i could not have said it better. i would also like to welcome our new commissioner, mr. torres, and by understand there is a new lafco commissioner as well? i would like to welcome you as well. we look forward to continuing to
work together to bring cca online. it is an exciting opportunity. as far as expectations, i am hoping we can hear a bit about the schedules and something about the rfp process, where we are, what we can see as far as the conclusion and when we can receive our recommendations from lafco staff. it would also be great to hear about finances. i know there was a budget hearing yesterday with a request to release monies from the reserve. it would be great to get an update with that in conjunction with the items on the agenda. i know we have a couple people here, one from marin, one from san joaquin. we look forward to hearing about your cca process. supervisor mirkarimi: this is going to work and beautifully. why don't we opened this up to public comment, as our process
provides for. is there anyone from the public that would like to comment on this item? seeing none, public comment is closed. we will continue that item to the call of the chair. madam clerk, please call the next item. >> item 4. update on state community choice aggregation issues. >> through the chair, madam president, thank you for appearing at this joint session. this first item is an item that we wanted to start with, dwhich is basically, in addition to our efforts, there are a number of things going on with our sister jurisdiction in the public utilities commission. as we wait anxiously for the results of our rfp process, which will be concluded today,
